Ryan Reynolds Gets Phone Call From Blake Lively & Kids in FX Series

Blake Lively EXPECTING Baby No. 4 With Ryan Reynolds

Checking in on dad.

Ryan Reynolds‘ wife Blake Lively and their kids made a sweet cameo on the Sept. 22 episode of the FX series Welcome to Wrexham. While visiting Racecourse Ground in Wales, the stadium of his Wrexham A.F.C. soccer team, the “Free Guy” star received a phone call to which he said, “gotta answer this.”

“Hi Dad, look at you on the field!” his family is heard saying in a FaceTime conversation, as Ryan pans the phone’s camera across the stadium. While the video isn’t shown, Blake is heard gushing, “Wow, that’s so cool.”


Ryan, 45—who daughters James, 7, Inez, 5, and Betty, 2, with the Gossip Girl alum—responded, “It’s so amazing. Seeing this place is literally emotional ’cause i’ve watched it so much on the video feed and to be here and standing ion the turf…just oh my god.”

The visit marked the first time Ryan and Wrexham A.F.C. co-chairman Rob McElhenney were able to visit the home of their team—the third oldest professional soccer club in the world, which they took over as owners early 2021—after cheering them on from afar for a year due to COVID.
